    Hey,

    It's Earth day, consciously we all know that we have to work on saving the environment.

    But do we actually do enough?

    So here is the challenge:
    Tell us how you will reuse your old phones and electronics and create something useful out of them.

    Outstanding suggestions will get some awesomeness from YU.

    FOR OLD PHONES I WILL USE THEM AS MESSAGE DISPLAYER LIKE SAVE EARTH ETC...
    FOR PC I WILL USE THEM AS A GARDENING TOOL
    FOR CPU I WILL USE IT AS A UTENSIL KEEPER

    Rather I would take the screen off and get it collaborated with Raspberry Pi (if possible). But since its earth day using such things with nature are harmful, rather we would dispose it properly so that it doesn't relaese toxics that are harmful for plants ;)

    Can be used as digital photo frame if it is in working condition.
    If not in working condition, can be used as paper weight.

    My plan for my screen-gone YUreka: using it as an external computer by removing data from all partitions and install ported Remix OS, and then rip the screen out. After that, I should somehow manage to get the Screen wires converted into HDMI and turn my TV into Android TV. Or I'd use it as IoT device

    Already worked plans:
    • I used my old Laptop's Screen and a universal Tablet stand and converted it into a Monitor.
    • I used my Xperia Sola as YU Quick Response Mobile for a while (I know, I took it too far, dedicating a whole mobile to help people :p) but now it's too laggy, that I quit using it. At least it lasted while I used it...
    • I used a useless USB cable and an LED light and resistor and converted it into a USB light, all under 20 rupees (It lasted for 1 Year, then I tried connecting it directly to DC and BOOM!)
    • In same manner as above, I tried for a USB cooling fan. It's working even now, and I connect it into jYUice and use it as Portable Fan :p
    I plan to somehow make the a Digital Bike too, but, that's a whole new different project.

    And the best one:
    I can chuck my old Samsung galaxy Young inside the hood of my car, and use Android Device Manager to track it. That way, we can have personal tracked-vehicle. Who knows where we will use? (Wives, drivers, children, girlfriend...........;) )

    : I USE MY OLD DEVICE AS MOUSE :
    I use my old Android smartphone as a mobile mouse, wireless remote, keyboard or trackpad. Google Play has Remote Mouse , or Android Mouse and Keyboard , or Mobile Mouse , can turn your Android Phone into a Wi-Fi keyboard and trackpad – perfect for presentations.

    • Virtual Reality
    • A Digital Learning Kit For Kids
    • Battery helps To Start Little Motors Used In Car Toys
    • If We have Rooted Old phone, We Can Know About What What System Have Included, And Some Game Hacking :D
    • Digital Photo Frame
    • GPS For Our Car
    • To make Experiments on Modding
    • Can Be Used AS An Gaming Device
    • For Listening Radio
    • As A Portable Charger and Storage ( using An OTG And Data Cable )


    : IF IT Matter OF YU Device :
    I Will Give YU Device To My SON. Because YU Devices Are Best Devices For Android Beginners

    First of all I have never thaught that this question will be asked and I don't know what will be real use of my old phones. But I have an interesting idea (well at least enough interesting for me :p ).
    I have collection of old phones like Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Some Chinese phones :D and many other old phones. Rather than destroying or recycling I will open a 'Old Mobile Phones Museum'. It will give new (or coming) generation a chance to know from where it all (mobile phone journey) started and now where it is (well I know there's many other ways to know about old things, but that's what museums are for. You can go there, see, feel and know. Gives you better experience).
    No pollution, No E-waste and things will remain NEW forever.
    Now concluding part :D : Its just an !dea, I am not at all serious about it, but would love to do that.
    Enough writing. Oh..... I have written my longest post in this forum probably.:eek:

    I personally think old cellphone should be given to kids (Instead of destroying it) so they can use old cellphones as more than a device. A simple use for kids could be use an old camera phone to collect pictures of flowers and leaves, rocks, or even insects and study them later, Kids can use Google Goggles to identify artwork and landmarks among other things.
    If the old mobile phone is a smartphone, then apps are available in plenty that can help to recycle the mobile phone into a carry-along study tool.

    (Or simply best idea is {according to me} Donate for reuse if possible.
